Thats great, once you get the idea of what your body needs to lose weight properly like you did, its a lifetime benefit.
30 lbs in 4 months is excellent! And most people do gain weight because of overeating processed flours.

Hahaha good one.
If you are doing that same diet and still have a tough time, you don't need a dog...what you need is a horse to "walk" everyday :P.

Bread is nice, of course homemade bread. But its true, it does make people gain weight because its hard to eat the small portion that we all can.

LUCKY ! Sweet tooth is a curse.

Yeah that is the best way to keep a controlled body weight. Of course most of the people hate physical activity, including myself years ago. But the more physical activity, the less ansiety to eat you'd have, so its good in all aspects.

My weight aways goes up and down between 5 and 10 lbs. There was a diet I used when ever I wanted to lose 10 to 15 pounds quick. No it's not healthy but it worked. The cabbage soup diet. You can't go far from home, lol, but it will definetly take pounds off in a matter of days!

And walking always does it for me too. But now I've gotten kind of lazy and can't even make myself get to the track.

You need a dog that walks "you". Mine is a biggie so he needs quite a bit of exercise. And, he is quite vocal so, when it is time for his walk, there is no peace in the house until he gets it.
